Fatal crash closes Interstate 90 for hours

By The Spokesman-Review
 

A 37-year-old Silverdale, Wash., man died Saturday in a single-car rollover accident that closed eastbound Interstate 90 east of Moses Lake for several hours.

Robert H. Goodwin was a passenger in an eastbound 2008 Mazda minivan driven by Bridget A. Singletary, 36, of Silverdale. Shortly before 3 p.m. Saturday, 6.5 miles east of Moses Lake, Singletary fell asleep at the wheel, the Washington State Patrol said. The minivan left the road to the right, and when Singletary awoke, she overcorrected, sending the minivan back into the eastbound lanes. The vehicle rolled off the right side of the road, crashing through a fence, the WSP said.

Goodwin died at the scene. Singletary was taken by ambulance to Samaritan Hospital in Moses Lake and transferred to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane, where she was in stable condition Saturday night. Two passengers, ages 2 and 6, also were transported to Sacred Heart and were in critical condition, according to a nursing supervisor.

Charges in the accident are pending, the WSP said.
